National Dental Centre Singapore launches Meals to Smile About recipe book

By  |  0 Comments

Meals to Smile About is a compilation of 30 delectable and nutritious recipes. These recipes are curated for those who face difficulty chewing and eating after their dental treatment.

The National Dental Centre Singapore (NDCS) has launched its first recipe book, Meals to Smile About. This is a compilation of 30 recipes, specially curated for those who face difficulty chewing and eating after their dental treatment.

NDCS shares that the recovery process after dental treatment is often uncomfortable, painful, and inevitably unenjoyable for patients who have fewer meal options to choose from.

We were inspired to create Meals to Smile About because we believe that caring for our patients goes beyond the dental chair. It is about their overall wellbeing, and that includes being able to enjoy wholesome, hearty meals with their loved ones. For many, food also has the ability to provide comfort. As such, through these recipes, we hope to bring a smile to our patients during their recovery period

Clinical Associate Professor Poon Choy Yoke, Director, National Dental Centre Singapore

Recipes range across cuisines and formats covering mains, sides and desserts with dishes such as Chawanmushi to Palak Paneer, Pong Tauhu and Lasagne.

These recipes were developed in consultation with dietitians, to ensure that the recipes meet dietary recommendations.

There are also best practices shared by dentists for patients on how to look after their oral health including those that are braces, dentures or those who have had tooth extractions.
